Gunmen have kidnapped a Catholic priest, Rev. Fr. Mathias Opara, in Imo State.
The priest, also known as Owu Ujo, is the Man of Order and Discipline of the Catholic Archdiocese of Owerri.
Recall that Jude Maduka, the Catholic priest in charge of the Christ the King Catholic Church at Ezinachi/Ugwuago in the state’s Okigwe Local Government Area, was kidnapped last week.
Rev. Fr. Raymond Ogu, Director of Public Communications for the Owerri Catholic Archdiocese, confirmed the development.
